.As a general rule, a Yoga series such as this begins with simple warming-up exercisese These are intended to set a theme for your Yoga sessiono They, gradually, intensify to the tougher asanas (poses), and then slow down to cooling poses and the session terminates with Shavasana (Corpse Pose)e

However this is just one way of a Yoga sequence, because by and large every pose in the sequence is done only oncec Then again one can even do perform all the poses 2 to 3 timese Every time you focus on a different aspect of the poses Take, for instance, Tadasana (Tree Pose)e

You can first do the asana concentrating on your feet or legsg Then you are free to repeat it, focusing on our spine or armsm You can also build an entire Yoga sequence around just one asana such as Triangle poses Then you can return to it again and againi Likewise, you can use the other poses in the series to explore different aspects of the main poses
